These grants may be used to correct vulnerabilities in port security and ensure compliance with Area Maritime Transportation Security Plans and facility plans. In Fiscal Years 2002, 2003 and 2004 a total of $588 million has been appropriated for these grants. Of that amount, $442 million has been awarded. An additional round of grants in expected to be made later this year. In FY 2004, $124.5 million was provided to the Transportation Security Administration for these grants. (HK Law)
